I’m sure a lot of you have already jumped on the Christmas decor train by now, especially after this crazy pom pom tree and this non-traditional cactus version, but just in case you haven’t I’m wrapping up our travel inspired holiday series for Princess Cruises with these DIY mini wooden Christmas trees (or mountains!)! Of all of the quirky ways we’ve come up with for celebrating the holidays on the go, these little guys are definitely a put-me-in-your-pocket-and-go type decor. Of course, a mantle will work too, whatever floats your snow globe!
First, paint each block the colors of your choice for the base and let them dry to the touch. Next, use a smaller brush to paint gold leaf caps at the tops of each to represent the star or snowcap, and then let them dry completely.
You can add a few small dots for an added touch, too! I think you know me well enough by now to know that I can’t let too many things go without a little extra polka dot or gold leaf action. Sorry, not sorry.
I’m pumped to finally be heading home to Houston to actually get to put up my own decor for the holidays, I feel so behind considering everyone else is practically already decked out! Last year I ended up with Christmas in October because I was too lazy to take the tree down for a month just out it back up again after a photo shoot, oops. What’s the earliest you’ve ever decorated?!
